aka Blackdown

(2013)The(12.5 hectares)field scale project at Culmhead Aerodrome has recently been granted planning permission, despite the twin challenges of being located in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and close to a Scheduled Monument. Very few sites within AONBs are suitable for solar. Sensitive design and a high quality planning application were crucial to the success of the application.
Will provide a 25 year fund for social, economic and environmental benefits within the local community.

Planning Application blackdown CULMHEAD

Turbines planned for CULMHEAD
Dec 2013. A PLANNING application has been submitted to Taunton Deane Council for two 11kw wind turbines, with a tip height of nearly 25 metres, on agricultural land at Leigh Hill Farm, CULMHEAD (aka Blackdown).

April 21, 2012 - A planning application for a 5 Mega Watt solar array, CULMHEAD
CULMHEAD Renewable Energy /Blackdown Solar Power Ltd (set up specifically to make this application?). Mr Beath,Director of both companies, and of a third company, called CULMHEAD Wind Power which has not yet undertaken any activities at CULMHEAD.

October 19, 2012 - CULMHEAD 5MW Solar Array Approved by Taunton Deane BC
despite objections from local residents and the Blackdown Hills AONB Partnership. It seems that TDBC consider a 5MW powerstation covering 50 acres, in an AONB [suitable] etc
